"We named my son Asa after my father who was also Asa and had passed away before he was born. We were always going to call him AJ (Asa Joseph) but never did! He is 18 now and like others have said, gets Ass-ah and called ?she? occasionally but it doesn?t really bug him. He usually introduces himself as ?Ace.?" Oct. 19, 2019:
"I named my son Asa because I wanted a name as special as he is. It has been a little difficult. Several people assume he is a girl. We?ve had mispronunciations including Ass-ah, Asia, Mason, Asan, so for a while I worried that I?d made a poor choice, but a year in, I?m very happy with it. However, we may go with the nickname Ace for school to avoid the whole Ass-ah issue." Jul. 15, 2019:
